Happiness Bought and Made

Today I felt like I needed a treat.

My day started with buying half a dozen Coffin Bay, and half a dozen Cloudy Bay Oysters ($14.90), freshly shucked at Christies. Continuing on a roll, I bought a dozen Hervey Bay Scallops ($16.90), roe off on the shell. Post a recent review at Toko (it rocks) I was compelled to buy six green mega sized King Prawns ($18.98) - yes, still at Christies.

Breakfast was four deep fried tiger prawn cutlets ($8.00) with a wedge of lemon, cooked by Christies.

Afternoon snack was two pieces of divine Caramel ($2) from Caketown. This shop came courtesy of the lovely Siri, who deserves accolades for the suggestion.

Dessert will be a slice of Tetsun di Barolo and a slice of Pompeii Washed Rind from the very expensive cheese shop at the Fish Markets ($21.90 for less than 250g of cheese - it better be astounding).

I even managed to remember the Fiji Market has ghee, so I avoided a drive out to little India (Auburn).

I have a bottle of Jansz Sparkling Rose chilling to have with the spoils.

Anticipating dinner... priceless.

Hint: you can get ghee in south King St at the Fiji shop there.

We just finished. Was divine! Those monster prawns were absolutely sublime. Three each was plenty, spread open, cooked on the shell in a cast iron skillet, finished in the oven. He's an excellent cook. You should come exploit this during your holidays.
